Ariel Pink – Only In My Dreams

Ariel Pink typically makes music that’s nostalgic in a crinkled-up, faded-out sort of way, but this latest track looks back in a way that’s both reminiscent and revelatory.

Bright and fresh from its first spring-footed chord, Only In My Dreams has life breathed into it by the optimistic sounds of the past, and brings with it crisp new hopes for the LA singer’s near-future release, the ‘Mature Themes’ LP.

4AD will release ‘Mature Themes’ on the 20th August, and Ariel Pink plays London’s York Hall on the 9th November; until then, stream the fresh-faced track Only In My Dreams below.
